After the World Final all attentions switched to the Gold Cup title, with the drivers contesting two heats on Saturday night followed by a further two qualifiers on Sunday before the title decider. Saturday’s heat wins were shared between Joseph Largy and Thomas McCrory Jnr while Adam Sloan featured prominently securing second place in both events.

McCrory went on to win both of Sunday’s heat races although a non-finish on Saturday evening would see him denied pole position for the trophy race. With all the points tallied Largy was the pole sitter with Sam McKinstry alongside, and then it was Sloan Harper and McCrory. Largy had a nightmare start which seen him drop well done the placing’s while McKinstry got off to a flyer and safely into the lead although close behind was Sloan, Harper, Largy and Kurtis Reid. The race continued in this fashion for most of the duration, until Sloan got a slight gap on the inside coming off turn two. Sloan didn’t need a second invitation and quickly moved into the open space however McKinstry made an attempt to defend which resulted in him spinning out of contention. Sloan reeled of the remaining laps to take the honours, Harper was second with Largy third.

On Sunday afternoon the Street Rods relished the opportunity to perform on the big stage at the speed weekend, as they contested their Irish Championship. Warren Thompson proved to be unstoppable once again when he romped to victory in the main event ahead of David Brown and Shannon Morrow. Brown was able to go one better in the revenge race taking the spoils ahead of Thompson and Morrow. The young lady racer Morrow topped off what was already a good afternoon with a win in the allcomers heat.

Gold Cup’s

The Group 2 Lighting Rods and Juniors were both on gold cup duties. In the Group 2 Lightning Rod’s Randalstown’s George Esler and Ballymena man David Gillespie shared the heat wins. After what was a lively final Wilson was first across the line, however he found himself penalised by the meeting steward for contact. This promoted Gillespie to the top spot hence claiming the Gold Cup title, David Nesbitt was the runner up with Wilson demoted to third.
The Junior Rods were also delighted to be part of the Stock Rod World Final weekend as they raced for the 2019 Gold Cup. Odhrann McGeown was the first to success with a win in heat one before star name Jack Morrow claimed the honours in heat two. In similar fashion to the Group 2’s the final was a somewhat energetic showing and again first across the line found himself at the mercy of the Steward. This time around it was Jack Morrow docked down to third, this promoted Christopher Cardwell to the win with Jonathan Brown second.

Completing the busy race card was the all action 2L Saloon Stock Cars. The grid was swollen with the welcome addition of Scotland’s William Mitchell. A passing rain shower left the track surface slippery for heat one which had the drivers struggling for traction. Kieran McIvor conquered the conditions to take the win before Mitchell got his hands on the flag in a dry heat two. Blue grader Daryl McCammon enjoyed a trouble free run in the final to take the glory ahead of Mitchell and Winston Weir.

Jack on top of the World

Local lad Jack Kennedy was literally on top of the World after scooping glory in the 2019 ORCi Stock Rod World Championship at Nutts Corner Raceway on Saturday 14th September.

The grid positions for the showdown were determined by a qualifying session which was split into 5 different blocks, giving each driver 5 minutes of track time. After the times had been recorded and verified the former European Champion Raymond Harper emerged as the pole sitter with Scottish ace Dean McGill next. Row two of the grid was comprised of Jack Kennedy on the inside and the former World Champion from Scotland Michael Bethune on the outside.

Each driver completed a parade lap, waving at their fans and collecting a commemorative award before they got buckled up. Once the usual World Final build up was concluded the drivers fired up their machinery ready to do battle over the course of 40 laps.

At the fall of the green flag Harper got away in text book fashion while McGill and Kennedy battled for second place along with Bethune. Kennedy soon took over in second while McGill got trapped on the outside line losing several places. As the race settled Harper still held sway out front but it was clear that Kennedy had stronger pace and was chasing him down. Behind the leaders Adam Sloan and Shea Duff were making strong progress through the field and already up to third and fourth. With the race now on lap thirteen the leading duo were as one and after some perseverance Kennedy moved through to the top spot, demoting Harper to second with Duff now safely positioned in third. Kennedy continued to command the race with comfort while Harper found himself under attack again, this time from Duff as the race neared the lap thirty mark. The pair exchanged places several times for the next few tours of the raceway until Duff got a slight break which allowed him to pull clear of Harper. Behind the front runners was another interesting dice between the Scots; James Gray Jnr, Bethune and Stuart McKinnon while England’s Rhys Longdoun and Andrew Morrow were performing strongly within the top ten. At the helm it was still Kennedy who completed the last ten laps unhindered to crown himself World Champion. After a sturdy performance Duff claimed the runner up spot with Harper third. The top six placing’s were filled by Longdoun, McGill and Morrow.

After the World Final all attentions switched to the Gold Cup title, with the drivers contesting two heats on Saturday night followed by a further two qualifiers on Sunday before the title decider. Saturday’s heat wins were shared between Joseph Largy and Thomas McCrory Jnr while Adam Sloan featured prominently securing second
place in both events.

McCrory went on to win both of Sunday’s heat races although a non-finish on Saturday evening would see him denied pole position for the trophy race. With all the points tallied Largy was the pole sitter with Sam McKinstry alongside, and then it was Sloan Harper and McCrory. Largy had a nightmare start which seen him drop well done the placing’s while McKinstry got off to a flyer and safely into the lead although close behind was Sloan, Harper, Largy and Kurtis Reid. The race continued in this fashion for most of the duration, until Sloan got a slight gap on the inside coming off turn two. Sloan didn’t need a second invitation and quickly moved into the open space however McKinstry made an attempt to defend which resulted in him spinning out of contention. Sloan reeled of the remaining laps to take the honours, Harper was second with Largy third.

Flyin’ Ryan’s Irish title

High on Saturday evening’s agenda was the 1300 Stock Car Irish Closed Championship. The season long point’s chart dictated the grid makeup. Nicky Lowry occupied pole beside Calvin Blake, behind was Ryan Stewart and Fionn Donnelly. The sparks were sure to fly and indeed they did as Lowry and Stewart engaged in an early clash which allowed Blake to hit the front briefly, before a caution period for debris on the track would regroup the cars once again. On the resumption Lowry regained the top spot while Robbie Wright, Blake and Stewart scrapped for second allowing Lowry to break free. After a few laps of lively exchanges Stewart cleared himself from trouble and set about catching the leader. As the race advanced Stewart was unrelenting and after some laps caught up with Lowry and made his move for the top spot. Stewart made a failed attempt on moving Lowry and at the second time of asking he issued a more sustained blow which would see him move through to the lead and crown himself Irish Champion, Lowry was the gallant runner up with Blake third.
A lively Irish Revenge race followed which was a reverse grid of the Irish. Stephen Gilmore was the pole sitter this time around. The race burst into life in chaotic fashion with Josh McKinstry and Gilmore early casualties. Blake was the man to beat this time around taking the win after surviving a late bout from Stewart. The 1300 action was completed by a Dash for Cash event where Stewart took the honours once again.

Saturday Support Round Up.

Completing Saturday’s billing was the Brisca F2 Stock Cars and Micro F2’s. A pleasing entry of fourteen F2’s was in action for heat one, which turned out to be a lively affair with two caution periods required. Graham Fegan enjoyed a fine run through from the red grade to take the win. Cullybackey’s Curtis Greer commanded proceeding’s thereafter taking honours in both heat two and the final. The final podium was completed by Fegan and Craig McConnell.
The youngsters in the Micro F2’s enjoyed three trouble free events where Riley Dawson, Joshua Murray, Amy Morrow and Ava McCreight were among the top performers.

----------------------------------

Drivers and fans alike were greeted by inclement conditions and Fridays NuttsCorner fixture. Race one of the evening was the opening Brisca F2 encounter. While the drivers searched for grip all race long to little avail, the rapid Stephen McCready had found traction and was commanding proceedings. As the race decayed Graham Fegan edged closer to the leader McCready until the pair were as one going into the final lap. Fegan put the bumper into McCready in an attempt to unsettle him from the top spot; however it proved not to be enough as the pair tangled with each other. McCready crossed the line first albeit sideways with Fegan next. Gerard Hartley took up the early heat two running, this time Fegan had broken well clear of his fellow star graders and soon started to chase down Hartley. Fegan didn’t waste much time in catching Hartley and making a move for the front. Once Fegan took over at the helm it was plain sailing all the way to the end, this time McCready was the runner up. The final was brought under red flag conditions on lap one after an unsatisfactory start was declared by the Steward. When the race got going proper Aaron Brunton occupied the early sway briefly before Fegan stormed through. As per heat two, Fegan went on to take the silverware ahead of McCready, Curtis Greer rounded out the podium steps.

Robert Mawhinney enjoyed the wet conditions in the 2L Saloon Stock Cars where he romped well clear of the competition in heat one to take a clear triumph ahead of the runner up Daryl McCammon. Mawhinney looked as though he was going to perform a repeat in heat two, however Winston Weir and Anthony McIvor closed in drastically in the concluding laps. Weir was hot on Mawhinney’s tail on the back straight for the final time and quickly went in with a last bend punt which would spin the leader out of contention. This allowed McIvor to slip through and take the win. Mawhinney was back on top form in the final, rapidly dispatching McCammon. Once in the lead Mawhinney reeled of the laps to take the victory ahead of McIvor.

Another doing the rain dance was Robbie Wright in the 1300 Stock Cars. The super star graded driver sliced his way through the traffic to record a definite victory in heat one. Calvin Blake was the runner up in the opening heat before Ryan Stewart followed Wright across the line in the second event. The final was a burly affair with the double heat winner Wright not getting it all his own way at this time of asking. After several lively exchanges Ryan Stewart emerged the victor, making it two final wins on the bounce, at NuttsCorner. Blake finished his evening with another runner up finish ahead of Nicky Lowry.

In the Group Two Lightning Rods, Randalstown man George Esler took full advantage of his yellow grade starting slot; cruising to glory in both the heats. Paul Nesbitt was Esler’s closest trailer in heat one while Clive Wilson was the runner up the second time around. The double heat win resulted in an upgrade to blue for Esler, which would see him be denied the hat trick of wins. Esler got off to a storming start and commanded proceedings until the last stretch, when Wilson used his years of race craft to beat Esler to the finish line after a spectacular outside line dash. Elser was the noble runner up with Rodney Stewart third.

Completing the race card was the Micro F2 Stock Cars. Joshua Murray and Amy Morrow were the top performers while Mya Hill also featured prominently.

The next event at the Raceway is one of the most keenly anticipated meetings of the season. The ORCi Stock Rod World Championship takes place on Saturday 14th September (6pm). There will be full support action including the BriSCA F2 Stock Cars, 1300 Stock Cars Irish Closed Championship and Micro F2 Stock Cars.
